STANTON – Football is alive and well in Stanton as the Buffaloes strapped on the collision equipment and prepared for the first full week of contact drills.

Texas Big Game Awards announces new rules for 2017

SAN ANTONIO – Celebrating its 27th year, the Texas Big Game Awards, a partnership of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Wildlife Association, continues to be the leader in recognizing the contributions that landowners, land managers and responsible hunters make to managing and conserving wildlife and wildlife habitat on Texas’ lands.

To kick off the 2017-2018 hunting season, the TBGA has re-established the program’s objectives and modified entry requirements. The purpose of the TBGA is to make everyone aware of the important role ethical hunting and habitat management play in the lives of our young people, and to the ecosystem over which we must be responsible stewards.

No excuses; it’s time to get this thing going again

STANTON – Every mention of the Stanton football team is usually followed by the mention of last year’s 0-9 season, a record that some media express as unlucky circumstances because of injuries and inexperience. These excuses are not traits displayed by the mighty and proud Stanton Buffaloes or their team leader, Coach John Peterson.

Not once all last season did the coaches or team use excuses of injuries or inexperience as an excuse for a loss. In fact the coaches post game explanations were “we did not play good enough for four quarters” on that night to win the game.

Wheeler, Rodriguez are keys to 2017 success

WEST TEXAS - The somber West Texas summer nights are usually filled with the peaceful sounds of locusts, coyotes and to some, even train whistles.

But come late August, for a couple hours on Friday night, the only sound that will be heard for miles will be the raucous cheering of fanatics enjoying the gridiron action.

A new season of high school football is perched on the horizon and coaches and players will soon start preparing for the long four month journey.

Two-a-day practices give way to acclimatization, walk through

MARTIN COUNTY - The grueling first weeks of the football practices in the West Texas summer heat are no longer the dreaded two-a-day practices that football players once loved and despised at the same time.

This year, August 7 will be the first day of football conditioning with absolutely no contact activities permitted by the University Interscholastic League. In fact, players are not allowed to wear any contact equipment, except for their helmets, during these four days. August 11 is the first day any team in Texas is allowed full contact.
